Bats! Brats! Beer!

Calling all dads! As part of Father’s Day Weekend, BPMM thinks you deserve a Saturday afternoon ballgame with beer and brats. Come celebrate on the front lawn of the mansion and watch the New York Mutuals play with 1864 rules, balls, bats, and uniforms—but no helmets or gloves! After the game, kids join in the fun for a game of rounders with team members. Beer, brats, and hot dogs available for purchase.
